Notes

One lake man was brave enough to go on board the Eureka and be photographed in front of a blanket. Not surprisingly, the man was extremely nervous and kept trying to see what was happening behind the blanket. McCulloch showed him several photographic prints to put him at ease. The result was this charming photo of two strangers from vastly different worlds sharing a moment of mutual enjoyment.
